But it's his room. He gets to be a douche and to project "negativity" if he wants to. Guests who deliberately flout the broadcaster's wishes are equally douche-y.
Personally, I wouldn't want to spend time in a room where the broadcaster has so little sense of humor and so little confidence in his own sexuality that he's offended because a gay guy compliments him, but others might be enjoying his show and might even be chatting non-sexually with him. Gay viewers who deliberately provoke a straight broadcaster because they are annoyed at him, are jealous that he isn't paying attention to them, or don't approve of his manners make it more difficult for those who want to stay and chat.
